The main event we visit the Grand for is the annual John Berry Christmas concert. What a wonderful and pretty place. However, if you are like me and need leg room; I do not recommend a seat in the balcony. When I sat there for another concert, I felt very cramped and uncomfortable. The floor seats are fine. We love... More

I go to several shows at the Grand each year. The staff is helpful, and the shows are always great! They have a Broadway series each year and it is great to be able to stay in Macon to watch a show instead of having to travel to Atlanta.

The Grand Opera House in Macon is a jewel of the theater. The acoustics are excellent and virtually every seat in the house is good. If you can get front row balcony, take it. The stage is fantastic and very large. Highly complicated productions are possible.

A gem of a theatre. The locals called it the Little Fox Theatre of Macon. It sort of was. Didn't notice any food or drink for purchase, but the ushers did not stop you if you had a covered cup in hand.

We have season tickets to the Broadway plays each season. Generally the plays are very good. Once of twice we have left when the language was not acceptable. The one problem that we have had with the Opera House as a building is the AC. Our seats are in the back directly in front of the air vents. We have... More

The Grand Opera House is a great venue in downtown Macon. I've been there many times for various performances and plays. It has a fairly large seating area but has a excellent intimate feel which only the older theaters do. The stage isn't really large but adequate for most productions. The sound quality is good. The seating is comfortable but... More

If you are going for an evening play, expect to pay for it! They think highly of their theatre. Although all the plays we have been to have been great. We really enjoy the GrandKids series that they have available to the kids during the school year. We homeschool and this has been a great addition to our school year.... More

Stopped by and Asked if we could see inside, Bob was gracious enough to not only allow us inside but provided us the history of this beautiful building.

Love the small intimate atmosphere at the Grand. Wish more acts would come. The sound quality is good, and every seat has a good view. The rows are quite close together which can make sitting for a long time uncomfortable. Decor reminds you of The Fox Theater in Atlanta.

Attendent let us watch last 10 minutes of a musical from rear corner, after we said we just wanted to peak inside auditorium. Great sound.
